“We expect the wedding to be on the same scale and attract the same level of interest as Prince Charles and Lady Diana Spencer in 1981”.

British Tours are noticing significant new interest in the sights associated with Kate Middleton and Prince William who are marrying on April 29th in Westminster Abbey.

Caterina Congiu of British Tours says: "The British Royal Family is often cited by our visitors as one of the main reasons for visiting the UK and The Royal Wedding has certainly reignited interest in the royal aspects of Britain".

Some of the sights which are now being included on their personal tours are the couple's London residences, their preferred nightclubs in Mayfair, and favourite shops including the jewellers who designed Kate's ring.

A number of central London hotels are booked around the dates of the Royal Wedding and an enormous amount of paraphernalia and memorabilia from copies of the engagement ring to commemorative Tea Towels are already on sale.

British Tours is predicting a couple of busy years over 2011 and 2012, with the Royal Wedding, the Queen's Diamond Jubilee and London 2012 Olympics. They are also predicting an increase to Royal Attractions like Hampton Court Palace, the Queen's Residence at Windsor Castle and Buckingham Palace whose State Rooms open to the public this year from 23 July to 3 October.

Caterina Congiu added: "We expect the wedding to be on the same scale and attract the same level of interest as Prince Charles and Lady Diana Spencer in 1981".

British Tours Ltd has a number of guides who specialise in the Monarchy and organise private tours of the sights in and around London. Westminster Abbey, where 38 Kings and Queens of England have been crowned and where the Wedding will be held is also included on tour.

British Tours Ltd was founded in 1958 and specialises in private tours of London, Britain and France.
